Product description / spec

pdp_proddesc2colleft

Of all the charters that 'Tornado' hauls, it can be argued that those trains made up of Pullman cars must be one of the mose desirable and elegant available. Not only does the set contain 'Tornado' and three Pullman cars, but an oval of track with siding, together with a train controller and wall mounted transformer.

DCC (digital) ready.

Track layout: extended oval with one siding and a buffer stop.

OO gauge.

With the addition of Hornby track and building packs the layout included in this set can soon become a fascinating model railway.

Space required 158cm x 114cm.

  • Size H8, W80, D30cm.
  • For ages 5 years and over.
  • EAN: 5010963411695.

Answer: 
Hi,

I have checked for you and DCC ready means the locomotive or train pack is fitted with a socket ready to accept a DCC decoder. This locomotive or train pack requires a DCC decoder to be fitted to the socket in order to work on a DCC controlled layout. It can still be used on a conventional DC/Analogue layout.

Thank you for using Question and Answer.

Answer: 
it takes a 8 pin decoder. please note. that there is not much room to place the decoder in this loco. its best to go with a decoder on a wire. as the only place you can put the decoder is in the smoke box at the front of the engine.
